James Threadgill, (center) son of Mr. and Mrs. Tim Threadgill, was recently awarded the rank of Eagle Scout at a Court of Honor held by Boy Scout Troop 18 of Jackson. For his required Eagle project, he oversaw the building of storage shelves at Peyton’s House, an after-school program for inner-city middle and high school young men.
